    Need Flex 2 security pointers

    tptackab Level 1
      I'm a fairly new Flex 2 developer, and I've recently read a number of blog posts and such that mention Flash security vulnerabilities.

      I know a Flex 2 application can be decompiled, and that basically means little or no Flex 2 client code is secure. Other than the obvious choices of not including passwords and secure information within your code, how else might this fact expose the security of my application?

      Are there other not-so-obvious security gotchas that every Flex 2 developer should know about? Some of the Flash Player Security Advisories are confusing. Do I need to force my users to download a certain minimum version of Flash to be secure?

      The application I'm building will be on the internet, and must be very secure. Is Flex not the right choice for an Internet application with tight security requirements?

      Thanks,
      Tom
